In 1996, NLG Analytical was formed and grew to become a respected supplier of gas chromatography (GC) and high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) instruments, professional service delivery, expert validation support, quality replacement parts and chromatography consumables.
In 2004, NLG launched v:kit – Its creation was driven by the company’s own experience of chromatography analysis as service engineers — recognising the need for a more efficient, consistent and cost-effective way of qualifying instruments. v-kit has and continues to grow in popularity, becoming the world’s leading independent IQ/OQ/PQ system for HPLC & GC Laboratory instruments.
In 2012, NLG Analytical progressed its service business to NLG Labserv Limited, with effect from 5th January 2012.
Labserv Ireland was founded in 2009 with a focus on providing laboratories with a comprehensive equipment repair and maintenance service, specialising in gas and liquid chromatography, tablet dissolution systems and mass spectrometry. Over the following few years Labserv rapidly grew to become a leading multi-vendor service provider in Ireland.
Combining the business in UK and Ireland gave Labserv the expertise, experience and support from cross trained engineers to fulfill the majority of Laboratory Service/Support requirements, throughout England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and areas of Northern Europe.
The complete Laboratory Solution, “We believe that a dedicated Independent Service company is a very positive development and we are now in a position to deliver faster laboratory instrument repair and broaden our service offerings to cover a ‘Total Laboratory Solution’ for all our customers” Gary Toher MD – NLG Labserv Ltd
In December 2018, SOTAX Group acquires GNA Analytical Ltd. and NLG Labserv Ltd. to enhance their service provision with strategic focus on the provision for multi-vendor services on analytical equipment within the Life Sciences sector.
The SOTAX Group, a global leader in the development and manufacturing of dissolution testing, automated sample preparation, and physical testing equipment for the pharmaceutical industry, has acquired GNA Analytical Ltd. (Labserv Ireland) and NLG Labserv Ltd. located in the UK.
GNA Analytical (Labserv Ireland) with headquarters in County Longford, Republic of Ireland with a subsidiary NLG Labserv Ltd. in Warrington, UK, offer multi-vendor service deliverables for a range of analytical instrumentation, primarily for the Life Sciences sector – key area of expertise being Dissolution Testing, HPLC, UPLC, GC / GC-MS, and Temperature Validation.
The acquisition will increase the scope of supply of multi-vendor services offered by the SOTAX Group and not only strengthen but enhance the current service provision to all their customers.
“We have listened to our client base, who repeatedly have asked for multi-vendor provision from the SOTAX Group to offer delivered services other than those for SOTAX products. The acquisition will now enable multi-vendor services to be delivered’’ explains Rolf Benz, CEO / President of the SOTAX Group.
“We look forward to working with all employees from GNA Analytical and NLG Labserv, who will be key and integral to the long-term success of the new organization.”
“Having built up two successful technical service organisations to offer best-in-class multi-vendor services, I am delighted to be aligning our skill base with the SOTAX Group and I believe that together we can offer a premium level of multi-vendor support to our complete marketplace and to the global client base of the SOTAX Group’’ says Gary Toher, Managing Director of GNA Analytical Ltd.
